Washington, Dec. 8.The cru
sade against John Goodnow, con
sul general,.at Shanghai, has beg un
agai n. Registered mail from that city
by the steamship Hongkong Maru, on
the 3d instant, brings serious charges
against him, made by citizens of
Uhanghai. These charges are sup
port ed by affidavits of well-knowjn
merchants in the orient, and by orig
inal photographic exhibits. The
charges are directed to the president
with a petition that they be referred
to the attorney general for prosecu
tion, to the secretary of state and to
the secretary of the treasury as a basis
of a suit against Goodnow's bond.
There is a general request in the
letters for a full investigation of the
consul general's office at Shanghai
and for the appointment of a consul
general who is "learned in the law. "
The letters conta in this statement:
"The consul gener al at Shanghai

Treaty Will Reduce Import Duties and
Guarantee Trad e.
Chicago, Dec. 8.Bearing the offi
cial copy of the new commercial
treaty between the United States and
Chinaa treaty expected to add mil
lions of dollars, to the commerce of
this countryJohn Goodnow, United
States consul general at Shanghai,
ranking first in the government service
below, Minister Conger, has arrived at
Chicago. H e is on his way to Wash
ington. Then, he expects to spend sev
eral weeks at his residence in Minne
apolis. H e has been in China six
years.
Minister Conger, Mr . Goodnow and
J. F . Seamen were the United States
commissioners who drafted the treaty.
Jt was signed Oct. 8 and on ly needs
ratification by the United States sen
ate to become effective.
"The new treaty cove rs three im
portant points," said Mr. Goodnow last
night. "One of them is the raising of
the regular import tax on United
States goods from 5 to 1 2 per cent,
and the doing away with numberless
imports that are levied by the vari
ous provincial governors of China,
which usually raise the total to 25 per
cent, and which Americans were
forced to pay .
"The second point is an agreement
to establish a standard of money. The
thi rd point is a guarantee by the Chi
nese government that protection will
be given to all who have invested cap
ital in the development of the coun
try's enormous mineral wealth."

Spencer's Work.
Herbert Spencer was one of the best
known writers of philosophical, so
ciological and ethical subjects , of the
age, his principal publications having
been "A System of Synthetic Philos-
ophy," "First Principles," "Principles
of Biology," "Principles of Psychol-
ogy," Principles o f Sociology,"
"Principles of Ethics," "Th e Study of
Sociology," "Education ," "Essays,"
"Social Statics," "Th e Man vs. the
State," "Reasons for Dissenting from
the Philosophy of M. Comte" and
"Various Fragments," his writings on
the higher education al lines dating
back as far as 1851 .
H e was born in Derby, England,
April 27, 1820 , and received his edu
cation partly tit home under' the
tutelage of his father, "William George
Spencer! a schoolmaster and private
teacher, and.partly from an uncle.Rev.
Thomas Spencer, M . A. , at Hinton
Charterhouse, near Bath. 'Herbert
Spencer declined all academical dis
tinctions and when they were con
ferred without his asse nt always
ignored them.
, H e began his career as a civil engi
ne er in 1837 and continued in this
avocation until 1846 became sub
editor of a newspape r, the Economist,
in 1848 and continued in that capacity
until 1853, and for many years was a
contributor to the quarterly reviews.
Much of his time from 186 0 to 189 6
was occupied in elaborati ng his "Syn

New York Sun Special Service.
Philadelphia, Dec . 8.Simultaneous
raids upon Mafia gangs in this city,
New York and in New Orleans are
planned by the United States secret
service. For months the agents have
been working to unearth the head
quarters of the society. They now
have a complete list of the leaders of
the murderous organization in this
country and enough eviden ce to se
cure their imprisonment in many
cases and capital punishment in others.
The three main headquarte rs of the
Mafia are declared to be in New York,
New Orleans and Philadelphia. New
York is the head center, and the re all
the murders are planned and the or -
ders for their execution issued. Or -
ders for the secret service movement
were received direct from Washington.
Chief Wilkle has been receivi ng re
ports from his men, scattered about
the Italian colonies, but centered in
New York, New Orleans and this city,
for some months. The failure of local
police departments to cope with the
society and the certainty that it is fast
becoming a national menace, prompted
the government activity.
Members of the service have taken
the oath of the organization and have
learned its innermost secrets. The
same methods which brought about
the disintegration of the Molly Ma
guires, the murderous mine secret so
ciety in this state, have been pursued
against the Italians. Al l the threads
are in hand and the mine can be
sprung at any moment.
When the trap is to be sprung is of
a secret. The operatives are

tatively stated despite this,.that whole
sale arrests will be made in the three
cities named and simultaneously.

Release of Unjustly Imprisoned Naturalized American Citizen Demanded
Consul Davis Was Escorting Him to a Departing SteamerPolice
Assaulted the Consul and Rearrested the CitizenHe Had Money in
His Pockets and the Police Wanted It State Department Has Or*
dered an Investigation.
Constantinople, Dec. -8.The United
States flag over the consulate at
Alexandretta, Asiatic Turkey, has
been haiJled down and Consul Davis
has left his po st for Beirut in conse
quence of a serious- diplomatic inci
dent during which Mr . Davis was in
sulted and assaulted by the local po
lice.
The affair grew out of the arrest of
an ArmenianChunnes Attarian, a
naturalized American citizen.
Attari an had been in prison at
Aleppo during the last two months and
had just been liberated thru the in
tervention of the American consular
agent, on condition of his leaving the
country forthwith. Mr. Davis was
accompanying Attarian on board a
departi ng steamer when the police in -
tercepted the party, assaulted and in
sulted Mr. Davis, and , despite the re
sistance of the consul and his attend
ant guards, re-arrested Attari an and
took him back to prison.
Consul Lowered Mag.
Mr. Davis immediately lowered the
flag over the consulate and formal ly
broke off relations with the "Turkish
authorities by quitting Alexandretta,
leaving the consulate in charge of the
vice consul. A mob of Moslems seized
on the occasion to make a hostile dem
onstration against the consulate and
against Christians generally.
The local authorities assert that Mr.
Davis struck the police with a ca ne
and that, after the rearrest of Atta
rian, the consular cavasses (military
couriers) attempted to rescue him,
and that in the fracas which ensued
the cavasses broke the windows of the
prison.
Turks Dislike Naturalization.
The Turkish authorities further
claim that Attarian, who is a native
of Diarbekir, Asiatic Turkey,'has been
traveling about the country with a n
illegal passport. They also point out
that the question of Armenians nat
uralized in America returni ng to Tur
key has always been a source of
trouble, since the porte invariably re
fuses to recognize naturalization.
When Attarian was arrested $2,500
wa.s found.in his -pockets. This, it is ito-day it* inaniye }f the Turkish of**-
believed, may have contributed to hisJeials -regarding^the matter.

Philadelphia, Dec. 8.The twelfth
of the startling holdups which have
occurred in this part of the state since
the murder of William Clendennen in

at Queens Run tower, near Farrands

refused tried to bre ak down the door.
Night Operator B . H . McCloskey
opened fire thru the door and drove
the man off. I t is believed that he was
hit by one or more'of the bullets.
The attack occurred about 1 1

arous ed by some one trying to gain
admittance. When h e demanded to
know who was there he received no
answer, but the man threw himse lf

him and turned to. Bhoot. A t that in
stant a whistle sounded, and as a
train drew around the bend the des
perado made off to the side of the
mountain.
The train was scarcely out of sight
when the visitor returned and again
demanded admittanc e. "Le t me in or

groaned under the weight of a blow,
and McCloskey fired. There was a
howl of rage and pain and the man

Questions the Expediency of Nom
inating Mr. Roosevelt.
Suggests That Either of the Senators
From Maine Would Make Good
Candidates.
New York Sun Special Service.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 8.The Com*
mercial Tribune, Saturday, in a lead
ing editorial, questioned the advisabili
ty of the republican party's nominating
Roosevelt unle ss it can be shown that i
he can certainly carr$ New York, a |
fact which at present, the Commercial i
Tribune says, it doubts. To-day the !
same pap er sa ys in part: ]
Why takes chances when certalntie* i
abound? The republican party 1B not de -
ficient in strong and popular leaders men, -
of brains and convictions with power to
maintain their positions grmly, eloquently
and logically men of calmness and self
control men of quiet and repose, yet most
resolute in their devotion to duty and to
right zealous men, energetic men, yet
courteous and considerate at all times and"
under every circumstance men of dignity
that command respect and of untarnished
honor that compel admiration. Such a
man is Eugene Hale of Maine, whose life
long devotion to the service of his coun
try and steady adhesion to the republican'
tenets of faith have endeared him to re -
publican voters thruout the union.
Hale of Maine.
' ^Z "T
Mr. Hale's nomination for president of '
the United States would satisfy every sec
tion of the country, unify the entire party
and insure victory to the ticket in 1904,
Old line republicans would be delighted,
and the men who learned stern republican
ism from the lamented .Zachariah Chand
ler would rally for Mr. Hale as one man
knowing tha no man's frown would daunt
nM M
would carry New York with a whirl.
Frye, His Colleague.
The colleague of Mr. Hale, the gentle
man who succeeded to James J. Blaine's
seat in the senate when President Garfield
called Mr. Blaine to be secretary of state,
William P. Frye, is admirably equipped
for the presidency and would be acceptable
to every working republican in the coun
try. A s strenuous as any man who ever
existed, yet modest, considerate, gentle
and courteous a fine "lawyer and ex -
perienced statesman, Mr. Frye has the re
spect and esteem of all who know him .
irrespective of party and no man has d^ne
party on-.the defensive ' capital and labor ss.1
would unite in the jupport of William- P . ^
Frye, and his nomination.would mean his . /
election and the continuance of republican \,~
supremacy. "
Piatt's OdelFs and Roosevelt's friends In -.:-
N ew York would vote for Frye. With V *
Frye as the candidate the republican party ?Tsl /'.
takes no chances on New York or upon
the country. &i$

The navy department has so fa*
taken no steps toward sending any
warships to Alexandretta, tho th#
state department officials informed
the navy department of what had
happened at that place. The San
Francisco and the Brooklyn area t
Beirut, which is distant several miles
from Alexandretta.
The state department does not an
ticipate any serious difficulty as a re
sult of this incident, for it does not
doubt that the Turkish government
will make proper amends for any irite
conduct of its officials at Alexandret
ta. The .state department has had
endless trouble with naturalized Ar

Turkey, notwithstanding the fact that
the Turkish government has steadfast
